Course Description

The cornerstone of business efficiency Energy regulation and legislation is forcing businesses to look at how they use and manage energy. The United Kingdom has brought in a legally binding commitment to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions by 80% by 2050. The impact on business is already being felt with regulation such as the Carbon Reduction Commitment . Measuring your Carbon Footprint is a key tool that a business can adopt to understand its energy consumption and associated emissions. It will assist in identifying opportunities to reduce energy consumption, thus reducing the organisations environmental impact and cutting costs at the same time. As larger organisations hands are forced by regulation, measuring and reducing your Carbon Footprint will soon become a reality for smaller and medium size enterprises as well either through direct regulation or through the supply chain. Course Content The course covers the following subjects: * What is meant by the term Carbon Footprint - Many people will be familiar with the term but what actually is a Carbon Footprint, and how does it relate to a business * Explore the drivers and benefits of a Carbon Footprint - How can this environmental tool help your business from both an environmental and economic perspective * Identifying sources of Greenhouse Gas Emissions in an organisation - What is actually using energy and contributing to your organisations emissions * Scope and Boundary of a Carbon Footprint - What emissions should be included within your Carbon Footprint assessment and where to draw the line * How to calculate a Carbon Footprint - Once equipped with the background knowledge how do you convert your data into a Carbon Footprint. A step by step approach * Identifying and prioritising potential reduction strategies to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions - Once the footprint has been calculated, what to do next to try and reduce the footprint * Outlining the different reporting methods of a carbon footprint - How to report your Carbon Footprint and the benefits and pitfalls of reporting * Carbon Offsetting - Once the footprint has been measured and reduction methods implemented, what next? The course can be tailored for your organisation as part of an inhouse training programme or candidates can attend an open course where they can share ideas and practice with people from other organisations Structure The course is delivered through presentations, discussion, and group activities.
